Lego City: Undercover Is An Open-World Undercover Detective Game


Ninja Gaiden 3 and Project P-100 aren’t the only game outside of Nintendo’s portfolio that they’ll be publishing—they’re also publishing Lego City: Undercover by TT Games for both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The Wii U version is an open-world game starring an undercover detective, Chase McCain, who’s on the trail of Rex Fury, trying to put an end to his crime wave.


On the Wii U, you use the Wii U GamePad to scan for clues, receive mission updates on the screen, and place waypoints on a real-time overhead map. Since Chase is an undercover detective, you’ll also have to wear disguises to access different parts of the city. Firefighter, construction worker and robber are a few of the disguises available. TT Games also say that there are over 100 vehicles in the game, including sports cars, bikes and aircrafts.


Meanwhile, details of the Nintendo 3DS version haven’t been announced yet. While Lego City: Undercover will be released this holiday on the Wii U, the 3DS version’s release date is “TBA”.
